Save Our Shoreline Jersey

AboutJersey is a beautiful island and still largely unspoiled, but successive administrations have paid scant regard to the environment and have endorsed the disposal of toxic waste into landfill. Our waterfront has been developed so badly that it has become an embarrassment.
SOSJ have worked tirelessly for 21 years to highlight bad environmental practice and works to protect our shoreline from pollution and bad planning issues. Now we have come ‘inland’ as development has eaten up large areas of what was precious foreshore and financial interests override sensible environmental decisions.
On this website, you will find current and archived articles, news reports and details of our campaigns, past and present, plus unique images that can be found nowhere else.
We also celebrate the good things that have happened and the amazing coastal scenery and intertidal areas – our south east coast and offshore reefs have been designated Ramsar Areas (Wetland Sites of International Importance) they are so special.
It is a shame that we have to have an SOS Jersey, but left alone our Government would continue to be reactive rather than proactive in the areas we work in. We are the only real Scrutiny organisation that exists in an administration which has no independent watchdog. Even the Ramsar Bureau in Switzerland have given up on Jersey!
